NARREC

NARREC

NARREC has facilities to accommodate many bird species - the most commonly encountered distressed wildlife in Namibia. NARREC will assist in directing the finder of a distressed animal to the best organization.

Birds of prey: NARREC
Parrots: NARREC for indigenous birds and in collaboration with dedicated aviculturalists for exotic cage birds.
Garden Birds: NARREC and Sonya Bartlowski in Windhoek.
Sea Birds: Directed to the Penguin Rescue Center Swakopmund.

 

Reptiles:
Tortoises: Often confiscated by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. Tortoises are victims of being kept in captivity by people who know little about their needs nor the regulation to prevent captive breeding. NARREC has assisted 100s of confiscated tortoises and together with Dr Peter Cunningham and the Polytechnic of Namibia conducted research into their adaptation into nature.
Captive tortoises should not be released on any farm in Namibia as many of these captive animals have been moved 100s even 1000s of kilometers from the natal site and many carry parasite loads that should be treated before release.

Monitor Lizards: Commonly found in urban areas trapped in fenced yards. NARREC assists the City of Windhoek and Ministry of Environment and Tourism in the capture and relocation of Monitor Lizards.

Mammals:
Porcupines are commonly found in urban areas and may enter gardens through the water drainage pipes especially in the dry winter months. They are occasionally found caught in snares. NARREC assists the City of Windhoek and the SPCA relocation of porcupines.

Small mammals include the Ground Squirrels, Yellow Mongoose and occasional others are uncommonly brought to NARREC where our food resources and facilities can accommodate them for rearing or rehabilitation.

Surricates continue to be misplaced as “pets”. NARREC has facilitated the creation of 3 family groups that have been returned to natural living. Together with the Ministry of Agriculture, Directorate Veterinary Services, the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, Permit Office, the City of Windhoek, Health Department and the SPCA an attempt at controlling the ongoing cruelty to these animals has been made. Cruelty to surricates includes caging of these animals and keeping of single animals.

Bats Bats can be assisted and unethical pesticide applications that kill bats can be investigated.

NARREC and Information concerning wild animals:
A center-based program is offered to formal learner groups of all ages.
A visit to NARREC is both informative and recreational for casual visitors.
A number of attractive and informative resources are available see www.narrec.net
